As mentioned in my last post, I’m enjoying listening to talks by Gil Fronsdal on the Eightfold Path.
I would really like to explore this area further, and in more depth, and I had an idea this afternoon – I will devote one week to each step of the path. To try to learn as much as I can, and incorporate it as much as possible into my life.
So this week is Right Speech.
I’d love to hear – have you read any books that you recommend on Skilful speech? Or any articles or blog posts? Or even any tricks that you use to remember to speak wisely?
Right speech is an area I am so passionate about, and interested in.
We can do both great harm and benefit with our speech. And it’s so interesting to be mindful of what we are saying, and how we are saying it.
I think for me the greatest challenge will be no idle speech. Not so much gossip (which I don’t participate in), but more chatter with no particular purpose.
So that will be a particular goal for me this week 🙂
Blessings to you all,
